We are women and men who believe in the life-affirming notion that dignity, equality and human rights belong to all people – male or female. Our theological perspectives include a feminist and radical analysis of power, and we maintain that all systems of oppression are interrelated, especially those that declare and justify women as second class citizens. We will persist in empowering our local and global community with awareness of and skills to reform structures of domination and control.
